The pilot for a new Nancy Drew series was not rejected for being “too female,” CBS Entertainment President Glenn Geller said on Tuesday at a pre-upfronts breakfast in New York.
“Well that’s just not true. We have a number of pilots to choose from, and we chose the best pilot,” Geller said, contradicting a report from Deadline after the network decided not to pick up the show to series.
“Drew” was to follow famous sleuth Nancy Drew, now a detective for the NYPD in her 30s, as she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills, all while navigating the complexities of life in a modern world.
CBS unveiled their fall schedule for the 2016-2017 season on Tuesday, with “Bull,” starring Michael Weatherly and based on the life of Dr. Phil McGraw, landing a choice spot in between “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans” on Tuesdays.
